Beginning Feb. 7, 2016, a new interactive experience, based on the hit Disney Channel movie “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar,” will debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park at Walt Disney World® Resort.
The Lion Guard Adventure allows young Guests to become honorary members of the Lion Guard as they explore the park in search of five main characters from the popular TV movie – Kion, Bunga, Fuli, Beshte, and Ono. These characters are represented as colorful statues that are perfect for a kid-sized photo-ops.
Like the movie, the experience encourages interest in protecting animals and caring for nature. Once they complete the adventure, each child can take a special pledge to become an honorary member of “The Lion Guard” and receive a special button.
The experience will be offered in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park through late March, as one of many activities celebrating the debut of “The Lion Guard” series on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
I personally can’t help but wonder if this experience will co-exist with the current Wilderness Explorers Adventure, based on the movie “UP”. I did ask a couple of people around Disney and never did get an answer. Maybe it will not affect the Wilderness Explorers Adventure because it is only scheduled to run through March. What do you think? Could this temporarily replace the Wilderness Explorers Adventure?
